PAIL TIPPER CONTAINS DUST

Flexicon reckons its new Tip-Tite pail tipper can empty pails containing high-density bulk solid materials into downstream processing or storage vessels without producing dust. The unit accommodates pails of up to 19L measuring up to 380mm in height, and weighing up to 340kg.

Intended for powder metals, chemicals, pigments, minerals or other heavy, dense bulk solids, the unit features dual hydraulic cylinders that work in tandem to raise and seat the pail rim against a specially configured, elongated discharge cone, and then tip the pail to an angle of 45, 60 or 90 degrees with a motion-dampening feature.

At full rotation, the discharge cone seals against the inlet of the receiving vessel, creating a dust-tight connection and allowing controlled, dust-free discharge through a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve. An optional pneumatically actuated vibrator on the discharge cone helps to shift non-free-flowing materials.

The pail tipper is made from carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, and all material contact surfaces are stainless steel. Other all-stainless-steel models are available finished to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
